For your post-Thanksgiving listening pleasure, Lingo and Phil get together while Mark’s away and they sample Klingon Warnog, Hoppin’ Frog Hop Heathen, and 51st Ward’s Whiskey Hill. Tune in and hear the banter, and we also have the band Alltunators on the pub stage!
Our focus for this week is a report from the Taproom at Schlafly Brewing in St. Louis, where Mark and Phil chat about their history and their beers, as served by long-time Taproom barman, Kevin Nash.
Also, left-over business from last week’s Style of the Week has us tasting a baseline Imperial Stout from the UK and the USA. We finish up with Schlafly’s Quadrupel.
The pub staff recently took a trip to St. Louis to visit some of the plethora of craft breweries in our neighboring state.
In this episode, we meet Brian Owens, head brewer at O’Fallon, and explore their new production facility, and hear about some of his brewing philosophy.
Also, our Style of the Week is American Pale Ale, and we discuss some style notes and sample a couple of examples from Ballast Point and Brickstone Brewing.
And finally, we have opened our new pub stage, in association with Railway Records, and we present this week, Midwestern Lull – the first of many independent bands we will feature. Grab a good pint of your favorite brew and listen in!
